Various T-shirts were set out on a stall with a samovar in front of the Pushkin monument. The T-shirts displayed featured funny and provocative texts in Russian. Some read “Sanctions? Don’t make my Iskanders laugh” and featured pictures of these mobile ballistic missile systems. Some had the text of the Russian anthem on the background of St. Basil’s Cathedral /on Red Square/.
“All are trendy, nice and funny. Our action is called ‘Fashion’s Answer to the Sanctions is No!’,” designer Anastasia Zadorina, whose company had manufactured 30,000 such T-shirts, told ITAR-TASS.
According to Ksenia Melnikova, one of the action’s co-organizers and president of the Sodeistviye /Assistance/ Fund, the key idea of the action was to demonstrate the world that “Russia is afraid of no sanctions.” Confidentially, she said that the organizers were ready to give out such T-shirts not only in exchange for foreign ones but just for free to “help people demonstrate their patriotic position.”
Organizers say the action’s bus will move around the city over the next two weeks. Its stopovers may be seen on the action’s website http:www.otvetim-net.ru. It is planned to involve celebrities in the campaign. From Moscow, the patriotic bus will set off for Russian regions, including Crimea. A special action will be organized at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport on September 29, when patriotic T-shirts will be given out to passengers.
